I can answer most questions involving Syrian hamsters - mainly housing and general care. I can also tell you what to look for when you are buying a hamster for the first time. I can answer a few questions about gerbils, mainly housing. I can also answer a few questions about dwarf hamsters and mice - again, mainly housing and general care.
I have had several hamsters, both Campbell's dwarf and Syrian. I have also had a mouse who lived to be almost 4 years old! (A regular white mouse named, creatively, "Mousie.") Currently, I have 1 Syrian hamster, 1 Siberian Dwarf hamster, and 2 gerbils. I have spent countless hours researching these small animals from reliable websites (which I can recommend to you). I strongly believe in being *very* prepared before I get an animal.
I love animals! Also, even if you are space-challenged, you can still own one of these lovable creatures. If you would like to see pictures of my little critters, I have plenty in my community on Webshots. Here's the link (click on "Pets" and "More Pets"): http://community.webshots.com/user/kellyprisoc
I hope to learn more about diseases and health issues.

Hi Jen, Yes, using bleach to disenfect the cage after an animal has passed away is fine (especially since you're washing the cage frequently and thoroughly after you've rinsed the bleach). I'm very
Hi Nicole, It sounds like the mother may be rejecting her babies, since she's not feeding them. I would recommend that you go to your local pet store and ask a knowledgeable staff member what to feed
Hi Christina, Golden hamsters, formally known as Syrian hamsters, are solitary animals (both in the wild and in captivity). As young hamsters, they are able to get along with their siblings. However
